5.0 out of 5 stars ingenious 17 Sep 2007
Format:Paperback
Maybe i live a sheltered life but this has to be one of the best kid's books ever written. I wonder whether Mr. Dahl was a madman or a genious. I got this for my 4 year old and as much as he enjoyed it, I think the real treat was for me the mum. This book must have passed me by when i was a child but I shall make sure I recommend it to all of my friends (and their children of course).

5.0 out of 5 stars A missed gem! 25 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
I am going through the Roald Dahl collection with our youngest, and we've just finished this one. Having previously read the BFG, we were in need of some light relief, and found it in this short but entertaining tale.

Its the story of a boy and his new found, window-cleaning animal friends. Its a delightful, charming tale, which will be a joy to read for young and old readers alike.

It isn't broken up into chapters, however, if you split it up yourself into manageable chunks there is about 5 nights of bedtime reading to be had, depending on your reading speed.

Best of all, no kiddies get eaten by giants.

5.0 out of 5 stars A review of The Giraffe the Pelly and Me 23 Jun 2010
A Kid's Review
Format:Paperback
I liked it alot because it made me laugh out loud. There's an abandoned house. There's animal window cleaners who wash the windows. Keep reading this book and you will find out the characters adventures. Beautifully illustrated by Quentin Blake this is a brilliant book because I couldn't put it down.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Giraffe the Pelly and Me 10 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
I love The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me because I like animals and I like sweets!
In the story there is a boy called Billy and his dream is to own a sweetie shop. Down the road used to be a sweetie shop but it shut down. Then a Giraffe, a Pelly and a Monkey bought the old sweetie shop!!! They turned it into a window cleaning company.
My favorite character is Billy because he is clever and brave.
My favorite part of the story is the end because.. I can't tell you why, you will have to read the book!! :)

I give The Giraffe the Pelly and Me 4 and a half stars. I think anyboby would like this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful entertainment 13 Mar 2010
Format:Audio CD
If your children like Roald Dahl, this will keep them entertained again and again. Richard E. Grant is enjoyable to listen to with an array of funny voices. A car full of children on a long journey loved every moment. This cd has stopped children crying! Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic yet practical 31 July 2007
By S. Kang
Format:Paperback
While Roald Dahl is already a well-known figure in the world of children's books, I have to say 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' is the book I enjoyed most - for reading for myself, and also for reading to the young ones. Roald Dahl's characters are brimming with wonderful songs, and the plot and the characters, fantastic as usual, has practical, down-to-earth elements that makes the feel like a story that could have happened, if one felt like believing it.

Another factor that makes this book so absolutely enjoyable is that there are no detestable adults, obnoxious characters or unbearably suspense-filled cliffhangers which makes it a easy read for the children as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab 12 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
Plot: When Billy finds an old shop for sale he decides to buy it. He thinks of making it into a sweet shop but instead he turns it into a window cleaners' shop because in it lives three animals - one tall, one with a big beak and one who can swing very well. The strange thing is he doesn't have a bucket, a ladder and someone to help him clean; oh no, he has a giraffe, a pelican and a monkey! Billy has some wacky adventures with three amazing animal pals (and some perplexing problems too)...

Amazing fact: Roald Dahl had always dreamed of having his very own sweet shop - just like Billy in this story.

Rating and recommendation: 7/ 10; to all Roald Dahl fans.
